In 2023, the Everson Museum of Art will open Louise, a new café named after artist and ceramics collector Louise Rosenfield. The café will be a unique culinary and design experience revolving around more than 3,000 pieces of functional pottery that Rosenfield collected from across the globe that will be used as the artists originally intended—for eating and drinking. Join Museum Director Elizabeth Dunbar and Curator Garth Johnson for a delicious brunch and learn how this transformational gift inspired exhibitions and museum-wide design changes.
